Movie Theaters and Cuban Vernacular "teatro bufo"

The first theatrical presentations were staged during intermissions in movie theaters that showed double features of films originally in Spanish or subtitled. Several movie houses in Miami included Spanish-language films in their schedule, such as the Teatro Radio Centro (previously the Flagler Theater), Trail, Tower, Lecuona and Hialeah (Essex) theaters. These presentations were short skits coming from Cuba's vernacular "teatro bufo" tradition.
